We all know about Command-Tab function on Mac and Alt-Tab on Windows. But what if we have multiple windows of the same application, Safari for example, and want to switch between them?
Command-Tab won’t be of any help as it will give us only one window of each application to deal with.
I guess quite a few people didn’t know this, myself included. You simply press Command–~ (tilde). That’s the key just above the Tab key on your keyboard. Sweet and simple.
Another cool thing I figured out while
fooling playing around with my Mac. If you are in any cocoa application and select some text, press Command–Shift–Y and the text is automatically stored in a sticky note on your desktop. A perfect reminder right before your eyes.
Not only this works with the text, but the hyperlinks will be stored as well, which is nice.
Images? Well… yes, see below. I was really surprised to see it capturing an image and also being able to save it.
Another way of capturing the selection is if you click on Application name in the menu bar, select Services and then Make New Sticky Note.
And no, it doesn’t work in Firefox.
